Conjunctivitis (pink eye)
Acute conjunctivitis is redness and soreness (inflammation) of the clear covering (the conjunctiva) which coats the white of the eye and lines the inside of the eye lids. This comes on relatively quickly and lasts for a fairly short time. Acute conjunctivitis may clear on its own, but often needs treatment from your doctor.
  • Mostly both eyes are affected, but often one starts before the other.
  • The eye is red, with the blood vessels over the white of the eye more visible and swollen. The lining of the eyelids also looks redder or pinker than usual.
  • The eye is sticky, with a discharge, which is worse when you wake up.
  • The eye is itchy or painful.
  • Sometimes people do not like to be in bright light (photophobia).
  • The commonest cause is infection with bacteria.
  • Virus infection may also occur.
  • Allergic reactions, eg hayfever , may cause conjunctivitis, but do not usually cause a sticky discharge.
The doctor will want to rule out more serious problems, which might affect the vision, and may examine you with a special torch for looking into and at the eye (an ophthalmoscope). In some circumstances, if there is doubt about the diagnosis, your doctor might use special fluorescent eye drops to examine the eye better. Sometimes, especially if the treatment is slow to work, the doctor may take a specimen of the germs in the eye on a small swab (like a cotton bud) and send it to the laboratory for analysis.

2. Seasonal Allergic Conjunctivitis - What Is It And How To Treat It?
Guide to allergic conjunctivitis for the public.
Seasonal Allergic Conjunctivitis
The most common type of ocular allergies are seasonal and perennial (year round) allergic conjunctivitis. Seasonal allergic conjunctivitis (hay fever conjunctivitis), is the more common type accounting for the majority of allergic conjunctivitis cases. As its name suggests, it is related to specific pollens that spore during specific seasons. Symptoms generally include red, itchy, and watery eyes. People affected by hay fever and other seasonal allergies also experience symptoms involving the nose and throat. Perennial allergic conjunctivitis is a year-round allergic condition. These allergic responses are often related to animal dander, dust, or other allergens that are present in the environment year round. Symptoms are similar to seasonal allergic conjunctivitis: however, they tend to be milder. Seasonal allergic conjunctivitis generally occurs in the spring months (grass pollen induced), and in the late summer months (ragweed pollen induced). Itching is a dominant symptom in seasonal allergic conjunctivitis diagnosis, as well as watery/mucus discharge, burning, and redness. Unfortunately, there is no known cure for seasonal allergic conjunctivitis, unless you can find a way to completely avoid coming into contact with the allergens.

Home Page Conjunctivitis / Pink eye Better known as Pink Eye, is the medical term that describes an inflammation of the conjunctiva, the thin membrane that covers the white of your eyes (sclera). This membrane produces mucus to coat and lubricate the surface of the eye. Upon close inspection, you can see fine blood vessels within this membrane. When the conjunctiva becomes irritated, the blood vessels enlarge making the eye appear red in color. The three most common types of conjunctivitis are: 1. Viral
  • Watery discharge Burning Irritation Glossy looking redness Infection usually begins with one eye, can spread. Often follows upper respiratory tract infection.

Treatment: Like the common cold, there is no cure for viral conjunctivitis ; however, the symptoms can be relieved with cool compresses and artificial tears (found in most pharmacies). For the worst cases, topical steroid drops may be prescribed to reduce the discomfort from inflammation. Viral conjunctivitis usually resolves within 3 weeks.

T he conjunctiva is a thin, translucent, relatively elastic tissue layer with both bulbar and palpebral portions. The bulbar portion of the conjunctiva lines the outer aspect of the globe, while the palpebral portion covers the inside of the eyelids. Underneath the conjunctiva lie the episclera, the sclera and the uveal tissue layers (Figure 1).
FIGURE 1. Anatomy of the eye and eyelids. The clinical term "red eye" is applied to a variety of distinct infectious or inflammatory ocular disease processes that involve one or more tissue layers of the eye (Table 1). Red eye is the most common ocular problem seen by primary care physicians. The term "conjunctivitis" encompasses a broad group of conditions presenting as inflammation of the conjunctiva. The inflammation can be hyperacute, acute or chronic in presentation and infectious or noninfectious in origin. Conjunctivitis is the most common cause of red eye. Most frequently, conjunctivitis (and thus red eye) is caused by a bacterial or viral infection. Sexually transmitted diseases such as chlamydial infection and gonorrhea are less common causes of conjunctivitis. However, these infections are becoming more prevalent and are important to recognize because of their significant associated systemic, ocular and social implications.

What is allergic conjunctivitis and what causes it?
A clear, thin membrane called the conjunctiva covers your eyeball and the inside of your eyelids. If something irritates this covering, your eyes may become red and swollen. Your eyes also may itch or even hurt, and they may water. This is called conjunctivitis. When an allergen is the cause of the irritation, the condition is called allergic conjunctivitis. Some common allergens include pollen from trees, grass and ragweed; animal skin and hair; perfumes and cosmetics; skin medicines; air pollution and smoke. Other causes of conjunctivitis are viral and bacterial infections. Return to top

Mycoplasmal Conjunctivitis in Wild Songbirds: The Spread of a New Contagious Disease in a Mobile Host Population
Download Article A new mycoplasmal conjunctivitis was first reported in wild house finches ( Carpodacus mexicanus ) in early 1994. The causative agent was identified as Mycoplasma gallisepticum (MG), a nonzoonotic pathogen of poultry that had not been associated with disease in wild songbirds. Since the initial observations of affected house finches in the mid-Atlantic region, the disease has become widespread and has been reported throughout the eastern United States and Canada. By late 1995, mycoplasmal conjunctivitis had spread to an additional species, the American goldfinch ( Carduelis tristis ). This new disease exemplifies the rapid spread of a pathogen following introduction into a mobile wildlife population and provides lessons that may apply to emerging human diseases. In February 1994, house finches with swollen or crusty eyelids and impaired vision were observed at backyard bird feeders in suburban Washington, D.C. ( ). Severely affected birds

Conjunctivitis (Pink Eye)
By Judith Lee and Gretchyn Bailey
reviewed by Dr. Vance Thompson The conjunctiva is the thin, clear membrane over the white part of the eye; it also lines the eyelids. Inflammation of this membrane is called conjunctivitis. Its common name, pink eye, can refer to all forms of conjunctivitis, or just to its contagious forms.
Pink Eye Symptoms and Signs
The most obvious symptom of pink eye is, of course, a pink eye. The pink or red color is due to inflammation. Your eye may also hurt or itch. How can you tell what type of pink eye you have? The way your eyes feel will give some clues:

Parents Infections
Conjunctivitis is an inflammation of the conjunctiva, the clear membrane that covers the white part of the eye and lines the inner surface of the eyelids. It is a fairly common condition and usually causes no danger to the eye or your child's vision . The inflammation can have many causes, the most common of which are infectious, allergic, and irritant. Infectious conjunctivitis is usually caused by either bacteria or viruses. Many different bacteria can cause conjunctivitis but the most common are Streptococcus pneumoniae Haemophilus influenzae , and Staphylococcus aureus . The organisms that cause the sexually transmitted diseases gonorrhea and chlamydia can also infect the eyes and cause conjunctivitis. This type of eye infection can occur in sexually active people and in newborns who acquire the infection at birth from their mothers. Viral conjunctivitis is common with several viral infections - most often with infections caused by adenoviruses or enteroviruses - and can occur during a common cold or the flu . A less common but more serious viral conjunctivitis is herpes simplex infection. Parasites and fungal infections are rare causes of conjunctivitis.

You rub and rub your eyes, but they won't stop itching. When you look in the mirror, they are red and puffy. What's going on? Do you have a strange sickness? No - you have a common problem called conjunctivitis.
What Is Conjunctivitis?
Conjunctivitis (say: con-junk-tih- vi -tis) is the most common eye problem kids can have. It can cause redness, itching, inflammation (say: in-fla- may -shun) or swelling, and a clear or white, yellow, or greenish gooey liquid to collect in the eyes. Many people know the more common name for conjunctivitis, which is pinkeye. It's called pinkeye because the white part of the eye and inside the eyelids become red or pink when you have it. Pinkeye may start in one eye, but many people get conjunctivitis in both eyes at the same time. Conjunctivitis usually doesn't hurt, but itching can be annoying. Sometimes it feels like you have an eyelash or a speck of sand in your eye and can't get it out. Adults, especially parents and teachers who spend a lot of time with kids, can get conjunctivitis, too. Conjunctivitis lasts a short time, usually about a week or less, and then goes away by itself or after treatment.
